Tasha DeShazo has been named a treasury management operations specialist at First Service Bank.
“I am excited to grow with Tasha in this new position. Her experience will be a vital asset to ensure customers are taken care of the First Service way,” said Barry Hickman, vice president of accounting and administration.
Tasha has nearly four years of work experience in the financial industry, all with First Service Bank. She previously served as a universal banker, loan assistant and on the loan training committee.
Her new responsibilities include promoting and implementing the bank’s treasury management products with commercial and small business customers. She will also develop new treasury management business, expand existing business relationships and assist customers.
“I’m excited about all of the new products I will learn about, and I’m excited to get to teach others how to utilize those products,” Tasha said, adding she looks forward to partnering with branch associates and customers, and being more active in the community. “First Service Bank has a lot to offer, and I know business owners and consumers alike will be excited about all of the new things we will be rolling out.”
Tasha has seen firsthand the impact that First Service has had in the communities it serves. “The heart we have for our communities is one of the reasons I wanted to work at First Service Bank,” she said, expressing her appreciation for the bank’s support of her participation on the Shop-With- A- Cop board.
“I know from my personal experience with the Clinton branch that customers aren’t just a dollar amount. We really do care about each and every person that walks through the door,” Tasha said. “We are always looking for a way to make sure we can help wherever we can in our community.”
Tasha said of all the groups she has worked with, Operation Red, White and Brave is “one of the most awesome programs.” ORWB was created in 2019 to support First Service Bank’s vision as well as one of its core values – patriotism. In 2021, First Service partnered with Habitat for Humanity and communities across the state to raise $80,000 to build a house in Little Rock for a veteran.
“I still can’t believe that we were able to build a house for a veteran in Little Rock,” Tasha said.
In addition to the bank’s commitment to local communities, Tasha said she loves the family mentality at First Service. “We have the best work family,” she said.
Tasha was born in Little Rock and now lives in Clinton with her husband, Joseph and their children.
